The German army occupies the majority of Europe and nothing seems to be able to slow its
progression. The Luftwaffe launches air attack upon air attack against London and the major
industrialized British cities.
Great Britain withstands and gets ready to face an imminent invasion. But Winston Churchill
was not one to sit back in a defensive stance. Convinced that the Allied Forces must
take the initiative and strike blows behind enemy lines, he orders the creation of elite
airborne units. Simultaneously, the Special Operations Executive (SOE) is established with
the objective to “set Europe ablaze”. After intensive training, these units will conduct
audacious operations of all kinds, striking like lightning bolts before withdrawing into
shadows. Their numerous successes, although often unknown, weighed heavily in the outcome
of the conflict.
is a cooperative game in which 1 to 4 players
team up against the enemy forces controlled by the game. Each
player selects a commando specialist and together they form a
squad. Then, they can either choose to play on one terrain (quick
game) or to select an operation, composed of several objectives
that must be completed across various terrains.
Each turn starts with an event that may affect the commandos'
plans. Then, each commando alternately, in the order chosen by
the players, takes 3 actions, hopefully making progress toward
the squad's objectives. Finally, new enemy reinforcements,
playing by their own rules, enter the terrain, move and attack.
Game turns continue until the operation succeeds or fails.
